It is not certain exactly where Robert Sixbury was born, some claim that he was born at sea, some claim he was born in Amsterdam or Manheim, New York. One story claims that he was baptized in the Catskills along the Hudson River at the age of two. Verbal histories/accounts claim that he was given up for adoption as an infant and that his new mother was less than kind to him as a young boy. He may have left his adopted home at a young age.
